The buzz about this organic jam-tronica trio from Portland is rapidly sweeping the nation. They create a full, lush sound while exploring the realms of house, breakbeat, down tempo, jazz and funk. They are cut from a similar cloth of The New Deal, but they blaze their own sonic trails. They will make you bust out dance moves you didn’t know were possible. All three of these guys are ferocious players but it’s keyboard wizard – Dave Dernovsek – who continually leaves a trail of slack jaws in his wake.

Peter Joseph Burtt has dedicated his whole life to the manifestation of his musical passions. The singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist draws from many sources of inspiration. He has gone deeper than most, having spent years living and studying with master musicians of Africa. Much of his music is played on traditional instruments, notably the lute-like Kora and the Mbira, or thumb piano. While tuned in to traditional African disciplines, the band’s sound is refreshingly progressive. They embody an uplifting, dance-inducing energy somewhere between the intersection of String Cheese Incident and Paul Simon. Adding to the spicy stew is one of our favorite guitarists – Zebuel Early; renowned for his work with Smoked Out Soul and Mama’s Cookin’.
Opener: The Sam Chase
A Crazy Horse favorite as seen with his band The Untraditional, this time we get to bask in the raw, unadulterated emotion of The Sam Chase solo. His finely crafted, whiskey-fueled Americana anthems are brimming with grit and sincerity.

It’s been a couple of years since this So. Cal jamband has graced our stage and we couldn’t be more excited for their return. Shaky Feelin’ blends funky rock with sun-blistered reggae and a dose of electro-jamgrass. The high-octane mix will ignite the dance floor and have you reaching for the sky. The guitar wizardry of Mark Masson and keyboard eruptions of Franklin Murphy are not for the faint of heart. While their sounds aren’t overtly similar, it is worthy to note that this gang is heavily influenced by Phish.

The Rayos have embedded themselves as a local institution through countless performances which unify audiences in collaborative dance and positivity. Their uplifting world music blends African and Latin influences with back porch blues, gypsy soul and funky roots-rock. Saul’s guitar, Elena’s virtuoso electric violin and both of their voices merge into a seductive harmony along with the rest of their band. When bassist Ajeet Campbell is on board with any project, you know there are going to be some deep, tribal grooves.

Leftover Salmon’s legendary frontman returns to the Crazy Horse for a night of “fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants” musical adventures. This will be an intimate gathering around the campfire – sans campfire – with one of the more brilliant, spontaneous, hysterical, madcap, heartwarming artists around. Bluegrass, Americana, psychedelic folk…whatever…this transcends genres. It’s just great music. And there’s a high likelihood that Vince will be joined by some of his ultra talented friends who aren’t quite ready to come down from Hangtown’s Cloud 9.
